LIP FILLERS
BALANCE ASYMMETRY, IMPROVE SHAPE AND BALANCE

Lip fillers have become an increasingly popular treatment for many patients of all ages. Lip fillers can have an anti-ageing effect, they can balance asymmetry and they can provide volume.

QUICK FACTS

  • Size of the lip is not the only consideration for a lip filler treatment – shape, projection and the prominence of the border are all important factors to consider
  • When placed correctly, lip fillers can have a significantly anti-ageing and rejuvenating effect
  • It is always advisable to expect some swelling and bruising following a lip enhancement treatment
  • Results vary for each individual, therefore, expectations and outcome will be discussed during the consultation

Lip Fillers q&a

As discussed here, dermal fillers are clear gels made from Hyaluronic acid that lasts for a limited period of time. Lip fillers are designed specifically to allow natural integration into the delicate area of the lip. They can also shape, define and add projection and volume.

As previously mentioned, there are many factors to consider during a lip enhancement procedure. It may be that the patient requires a more defined vermillion border, perhaps they need some correction for asymmetry or maybe would just like a little more volume. It is also possible to lift the corners of the mouth when using dermal filler in the lip area which can have a rejuvenating effect. It may also be appropriate to fill areas around the lips when treating this area, such as smokers lines, marionette lines or nose to mouth lines.
Lip fillers are suitable for anyone that is concerned with the appearance of their lips and the appropriate treatment plan can be determined during your consultation with Anna.

A local anaesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment which can reduce discomfort during treatment. The dermal fillers of choice at Anna Medical Aesthetics have a local anaesthetic called Lignocaine integrated within the product which can make the whole process more comfortable. Treatment times will vary but generally will be around 30 – 60 minutes.

The longevity of lip filler varies between individuals but generally will last around 9 – 12 months and it used to:

  • Increase volume and balance of the lips
  • Hydrate lips
  • Enhance the border of the lips
  • Lift the mouth corners

Personally, I wouldn’t treat you while you are pregnant or breastfeeding. This may seem a little harsh, but I would wait if it were myself. To the best of my knowledge, dermal fillers are not tested on pregnant or breastfeeding women, so there really is no safety data available. Since local anaesthetic is used for most filler injections, there is a risk it can get to your bloodstream and to your baby.

AFTERCARE

You will be able to carry on with your normal activities following treatment. It is not advised to do any heavy exercise and avoid UV exposure for 24 hours. We also advise trying to refrain from applying make-up following the procedure on the day of treatment. An ice-pack can also be applied to the area to reduce swelling. A full list of aftercare will be discussed on the day of treatment.

SAFETY & SIDE-EFFECTS

Following your procedure, it is more common than not to have swelling of the lips. This can take up to a week to completely subside but will generally reduce significantly after 24 – 48 hours. Applying ice packs to the area following treatment can help reduce this.
Despite efforts being made to avoid bruising, it can occur. If it does, it can take a week or two to completely disappear. Make-up can be applied to conceal it if needed, but ideally not on the day of treatment to avoid the risk of infection. Arnica gel/cream can also be applied to the area to help reduce the appearance of bruising.
A full list of possible side effects will be discussed with you during your consultation.

It is best to discuss your needs, expectations and suitability for treatment during a face-to-face complementary consultation. Anna can assess your facial anatomy and make tailored recommendations to achieve the best possible outcome.

“Going to Anna was one of the best choices I have made. She is very professional, and explains procedures very clearly. I opted for the Ellansé facelift under Anna's recommendation and I can proudly say that after the procedure, I was absolutely amazed by the results! I would highly recommend to anyone over 40. Having fresh, younger-looking skin has boosted my confidence and I feel a lot more happy with my appearance.”
